Pale Pink Moodboard created on www.sampleboard.com

 

Light pink tends to be associated with retro decor, children’s rooms, or antiquated bed and breakfast furnishings. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s good news for lovers of this gentle color. Rose Quartz was named Pantone Color of the Year in 2016 and is cropping up to show its sophisticated side. Home decor enthusiasts can use this as an opportunity to re-brand the “girly” hue as something a little more versatile.

So forget the doilies and roses. Instead, check out fresher takes on pale pink from Home Improvement Leads.

Suave and snug: Living room design daydreams

July 13, 2016

Living room daydream moodboard

 

Living rooms aren’t just private spots to plunk down after a long day and turn on the TV: they’re also the place for quality family time, friendly get-togethers, and solitary weekend afternoons spent pursuing creative hobbies. Their mixed-use nature makes sitting rooms one of the most important areas in every home, which is all the more reason to invest special attention into living room design. As for me, I’m a huge fan of imaginative décor tryouts, and after years of experimenting, I think I’ve finally managed to put together a living room out of my dreams.

Moodboard created on www.sampleboard.com

 

If an engaging picture is worth a thousand words, then a cool moodboard is worth at least a million, especially in the web world. Show, do not just talk: a post with quality pictures is by as many as 80% more likely to capture viewers’ attention, and it can also receive up to 40 times more shares on social platforms. For this reason, the amount of planning and effort which design-savvy interior design bloggers invest in visual blog components is often the same as (if not greater than) that which goes into the verbal aspect of their site. To ensure maximum visibility online, home décor bloggers often turn to moodboards, custom-created images, and collages, which offer a simple tool to boost interest among existing followers and attract new ones – and bloggers love traffic spikes more than anything else. Here are some ideas on how to create ravishing visuals for your blog that will increase the aesthetic appeal of your site and get more eyeballs on content online.

TIPS FOR A MINIMALIST LIVING ROOM MOOD BOARD CREATED ON www.sampleboard.com

Steps to an uncluttered living room by Paisley Hansen

The living room is an area where the family retreats to be able to relax and spend time together. If the room becomes too cluttered, it is no longer somewhere that you will feel relaxed, but rather, would feel anxious or unclean. Clutter can lead to bad feelings, therefore it should be eliminated from the living room (and other rooms, of course) so that the area can be enjoyed. There are several ways that clutter can be removed from the living room area, while keeping it attractive with simplistic decor.

Romantic shades of soft pastels are making waves this year when it comes to decorating homes with this feminine colourway. Living in the southern hemisphere, we are deep into winter weather and just the thought of pretty pastels brightens my day! Be selective to where and how you use pastels, maybe only paint a feature wall like some of the examples below. It does soften an uninviting interior immediately, but most of all, make sure you LOVE what you buy and only surround yourself with beauty.

So I’m counting down the weeks for my new kitchen to be built. After a lot of time pinning (check out my Nordic Summer House board) I have finally settled on a style. Nordic Summer House meets Modern Farmhouse. And after a lot of contemplation and research I have decided to use Bianca Carrara marble as countertops, although I will be using a sort of acid-wash to remove most of the “shine” so it gets installed with a slight patina already…with an underslung double basin.

Interior Design Ideas // Grey walls + Scandinavian Style

Digital interior design Scandinavian mood board created with www.sampleboard.com

“Keep life simple” – Scandinavian interior design is simple by nature, and oh so striking, if you like this kinda style, but find it a little uninviting at times (like the mood board featured above – a lot of whites + blacks) you can easily warm up the look by painting your walls light grey and adding timber accents. Always a trick finding that perfect shade though!

We have recently bought and moved into our new house, a little ugly duckling on a beautiful piece of land at the foot of majestic Chapmans Peak Drive , one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world, and a stones throw to the beach. (Yip, I am smiling from ear to ear as my dream has finally come true! But lets leave that for another post)…back to our little Knysna timber home…

Fall 2013 Interior Design Trend | Brass & Copper

November 8, 2013

fall 2013 design trend copper interior design mood board

As mentioned by Design & Trend metallics like stainless steel have stolen the show for a few years now, but the inclusion of brass, gold and copper has made an appearance as well. Metallics always stand out, and they can look rather stunning when they contrast a simple living space. Interiorish notes that it not only looks timeless, elegant and chic, but it is also budget friendly.

Elle Décor reports that brass has “rich gleam and sculptural weight” where it is “experiencing a resurgence.” Designers are looking back to the 1970s where brass and bronze show up more frequently, like in Carl Aubock accessories and Gabriella Crespi cocktail tables. Today Kelly Wearstler makes nearly entire rooms with brass as the “metal of the moment.” Read More
